You should really be thinking about what you will leave them as an inheritance and legacy of your life:- Knowledge? skills? an earning capacity? clear thinking? a secure financial base on which to base their lives and support your grandchildren?

Afterlives are fantasy, which even if they were possible, people have simply not thought them through.

Would you even wish to be in a room for years with some of the people who claim to be joining you? - or participating in some of the "Utopian" activities they would wish to participate in?

One good life is enough, and all we can expect at best. Make the most of it for yourself, friends and family.
